Mike and Francine Brossier, owners of The Olive Oil Factory, LLC, (a.k.a. Sonoma Harvest Foods) secured $10.9 million in total project financing to purchase and make improvements to a 92,568 square-foot building to consolidate operations and create a new infrastructure for a hot-fill production and packing area to expand the business. Their new building is located at 770 Chadbourne Road, Fairfield, CA, 94534, in the heart of Fairfield’s food tourism district.
Mike and Francine founded the business in 2004, and it truly is a family affair—Mike’s two sisters, a brother-in-law and his wife’s cousin also work there, and he hopes to someday turn the business over to his own children. “We take care of our people and we treat everybody like family,” Mike said.
“We saw the opportunity to purchase the land and build a custom facility that would hopefully fulfill our needs for the next 10 to 20 years. It was important to consolidate our offices, conference rooms, tasting room, olive-crushing system, and barrel room for the winery, all under one roof,” said Mike Brossier, Owner, The Olive Factory.
